vSphere Hardening – G3 : Mask and zone SAN resources appropriately

Image
Guideline ID : ESXi.mask-zone-sanVulnerability Discussion : You should use zoning and LUN masking to segregate SAN activity. For example, you manage zones defined for testing independently within the SAN so they do not interfere with activity in the production zones. Similarly, you can set up different zones for different departments. Zoning must take into account any host groups that have been set up on the SAN device.Risk Profile : 1,2, 3Description : Mask and zone SAN resources appropriately.Zoning provides access control in the SAN topology. Zoning defines which HBAs can connect to which targets. When … Read The Rest ......

Wi-Fi security is starting to get its biggest upgrade in over a decade

Image
Wi-Fi devices have been using the same security protocol for over a decade. But today, that'll begin to change: the Wi-Fi Alliance, which oversees adoption of the Wi-Fi standard, is beginning to certify products that support WPA3, the successor to the WPA2 security protocol that's been in use since 2004.The new protocol provides a number of additional protections for devices connected over Wi-Fi. One big improvement makes it harder for hackers to crack your password by guessing it over and over again, and another limits what data hackers can see even once they've uncovered the passcode. Nothing will change as far as users see it; you'll still just type in your password and connect to the network.WPA3 adds forward secrecy and prevents... Continue reading…

WiFi's tougher WPA3 security is ready

Image
WiFi security is finally getting an upgrade after 14 years. The Wi-Fi Alliance has officially launched WPA3, the next-generation standard that promises to tackle many of the vulnerabilities that have persisted in wireless networking. Most notably, it brings individualized data encryption that should protect your data against eavesdropping from wit hin the WiFi network. You'll also get tougher password-based sign-ins through Simultaneous Authentication of Equals, a key establishment protocol that reduces the chances of someone guessing your password -- even if it's lousy.If you're using professional-grade WPA3-Enterprise security, you'll get the "equivalent" to 192-bit encryption strength that should make it tougher to crack secure data. There's also easier setup for smart home devices through Easy Connect, which lets you use your phone to set up WiFi on devices that have either a tiny display or no display at all.Just when you'll see WPA3 on you…

'Dota 2' team kicked from $15 million finals for using illegal mouse

Image
There have been several eSports cheating scandals before, including a match-fixing arrest, an 'Overwatch' hackers being fined almost $10 thousand and a PUBG hacker arrested for selling game cheats. The stakes continue to remain high, as with a Dota 2 player who just disqualified his team from a $15 million tournament by using a programmable mouse.According to a report over at Motherboard, the organizers of The International 2018 took Peru's Thunder Predator team out of the running when they found that one team member used a Razer Synapse 3 mouse with pre-set macros added in. The cheating was discovered when player Atún was able to teleport several character clones at the exact same time, a move impossible to pull off without a pre-programmed macro, according to Motherboard. The offending team said that no software macros had been used, but that Atún uses the Synapse mouse with a "manual configuration to be able to have a better use of hardware."Apparently that st…

FCC gives remote health care a huge funding boost

Image
Rural residents might soon have a better chance of seeing a doctor without venturing into the city. The FCC has raised the annual spending cap on the Rural Health Care Program by 43 percent to $571 million to tackle "funding shortages" driven by a spike in demand for remote medical services. To call this overdue would be an understatement -- the FCC noted that t he previous cap ($400 million) had been established in 1997, when rural broadband was just a pipe dream. The boost reflects what that fund would be worth if it had accounted for inflation over the past 21 years.The regulator promised that it would adjust the cap for inflation on a yearly basis, and would let any unused spending carry forward.The current FCC leadership hasn't won many fans in technology circles, but this telemedicine increase (along with hoped-for increases in rural broadband funding) could be crucial in the long run. High-speed rural internet is promising precisely because it closes service…

Salesforce employees ask CEO to ‘re-examine’ contract with border protection agency

Image
Salesforce employees are the latest to push back against their employer's contracts with US government agencies. In a letter to Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, which was obtained by BuzzFeed News, employees ask that the company "re-examine" its relationship with Customs and Border Protection, which they say uses several of its cloud products. More than 650 people have reportedly signed on to the letter."We cannot cede responsibility for the use of the technology we create," the letter reads, "particularly when we have reason to believe that it is being used to aid practices so irreconcilable to our values.""We must craft a plan for examining the use of all our products." The letter specifically calls out families being separated at the...Continue reading…

DARPA wheels change from tires to tracks without stopping

Image
Travel across difficult terrain usually involves a lot of compromise. Tracks will get you where you need to go, but they're slow whenever you're covering open ground. DARPA, however, doesn't think you should have to make that choice. It's working with Carnegie Mellon University on Reconfigurable Wheel-Track technology that converts wheels from tracks to tires (and vice versa) in the middle of a drive. As you can see in the clip below, the change takes just two seconds -- you could drive off the road and up a hillside without skipping a beat.DARPA has been showing off RWT as part of a series of vehicle research projects including an in-hub electric motor (to improve speed and maneuverability) and Multi-mode Extreme Travel Suspension (to allow high speed over rough ground). It's looking into technology that improves drivers' awareness, too, such as virtual windows (enabled with 3D goggles), sensor-enhanced virtual perspectives and visual overlays that help f…

Hulu's new Viacom deal includes 'Daria' and other older shows

Image
Hulu has signed a new deal with Viacom for exclusive rights to stream full series, including Daria, Nathan for You, My Super Sweet 16, The New Edition Story and 20 films including School of Rock. The agreement includes content from Nickelodeon, like Nick Cannon's musical show Make It Pop, animated programs Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness and Penguins of Madagascar.The deal follows Viacom's slow retraction of current content from streaming services over the years. The multimedia giant may be granting Hulu exclusive rights to older shows, but is likely saving its best current series (like, say, The Daily Show) for the streaming service it vowed to launch sometime this year. It's also an auspicious moment for Hulu, Deadline pointed out, as Comcast and Disney fight to buy 21st Century Fox. Given that all three companies own 30 percent each of Hulu, whichever of the two former acquire the latter may gain authority to change the streaming service from within.Source: Deadli…

NASA's aircraft modifications make planes 70 percent quieter

Image
While NASA's research often makes headlines for advancements that could facilitate space exploration -- like, say, more portable nuclear reactors or X-ray navigation -- it also looks into tech to help us here on Earth, too. The agency just completed a series of flights testing out new airframe components that could reduce the noise they generate when landing by over 70 percent. That could mean quieter airports and happier communities surrounding them, and consequently fewer noise complaints to the FAA.Scientists from NASA's Langley, Virginia facility tested non-propulsion component parts on a Gulfstream III jet. These included porous landing gear fairings that allowed some air to flow through, as well as several different additions for cavities (gaps in the airframe like those created when the wheels are lowered) to mitigate noise. Finally, NASA tried out a seamless and flexible design that covers the space that typically emerges between wing and deployed flaps.There's tel…
